Hymn 127 - Oh, for a Closer Walk with God

Instrumental Accompaniments

Vocal Accompaniments


Oh, for a closer walk with God,

A calm and heav’nly frame,

A light to shine upon the road

That leads me to the Lamb!

Where is the blessedness I knew

When first I saw the Lord?

Where is the soul-refreshing view

Of Jesus and His Word?

What peaceful hours I then enjoyed!

How sweet their mem’ry still!

But they have left an aching void

The world can never fill.

Return O Holy Dove, return,

Sweet messenger of rest;

I hate the sins that made Thee mourn,

And drove Thee from my breast.
